Summary: i got Triple Play 2002, cause it looked awsome. bought it at Best Buy on a gift card, and i love it. the game is awsome, the music is good, and best of all, it's a very EASY and SIMPLE baseball game. nothing really special about it. the players faces are AWSOME, and are actually more realistic than the faces of ESPN baseball 2k4 and 2k5. yep, Triple Play 2002 had better more life like face resemblences than the newest baseball games on the market.
Summary: But considering the power of the X BOX and the fact that it's 2002 now, not 1992; I was thinking that EA would make one Helluva Baseball Game for this system...It is fun to play. It is true that the players have anatomicly Incorrect head sizing (Plus Size Egos?), but it is just a video game anyways... so I say yay! I bought it on the EA name- I don't regret it... but next season I am renting games before I buy 'em.
Summary: I though All-Star baseball was much to difficult on the offensive side, so I traded it in for this game. Unfortunately, this one seems to make it too easy to get a hit. The graphics are good, though the bodies of the players are not always the right size, and it is difficult to get used to the camera movements when somebody gets a hit. The players' faces, though are usually very accurate.
Summary: This game is a bit of an unknown. Last year's release of Triple Play Baseball was EXACTLY the same as TP 01. The only additions I noticed were 2 new stadiums and updated rosters. Fortunately I didn't waste my money and buy it. I just downloaded the trial version of the PC game. Hopefully EA sports got their act together this year to make a solid baseball game.
